  1. There's no defense for movies like these, but neither do they warrant apology; they're irresistibly watchable, like car wrecks.

    This grim, joyless motion picture is anything but fun. It’s a chore to sit through, with all the blazing, noisy pyrotechnics proving unable to lighten the mood.
  3. Kaos was apparently aiming for a coolly stylized, straight-faced take on ''Spy vs. Spy.'' As Maxwell Smart used to say, ''Missed it by that much.''
  4. Cut down to a frantic 88 minutes, you wonder if all the human moments were trimmed away to get to this abstract, humorless exercise in empty flourish.
  5. 40
    The plot can be really tough to follow, in part because Banderas' accent, rarely a problem in recent years, is surprisingly hard to understand at crucial moments, and partly because it's tough to keep track of just who's working for whom...and why...and even where.

The movie leaps beyond its humble apparent origins with the help of true spectacle in the eyes of a visionary director ahead of his time. Full Review »
